Immobile made a rare start but failed to score as Dortmund lost 2-0 to Arsenal in the Champions League Wednesday.

Immobile has had very little game time lately owing to his poor form but made his first start since the DFB Pokal win over St. Pauli. His selection was not justified however as the Italian toiled badly in attack and had little in the way of chances. Dortmund may have already qualified from the competition's group stages and so a result here wasn't essential but for Immobile it was a key chance wasted to force himself back into the team.

Immobile replaced Marco Reus as an 89th minute substitute in Dortmund's 1-0 win Sunday against Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Immobile has had few playing opportunities for Dortmund lately and Sunday was no different. He replaced Reus on 89 minutes with Dortmund looking to count down the clock and managed to get booked in an unspectacular cameo.

Immobile scored three minutes after coming off the bench as Dortmund beat Galatasaray 4-1 Tuesday in the Champions League.

Not used at all in the previous match and not in the starting line-up for this game, Immobile had to taken his chance if he got an opportunity against Galatasaray. That he did, scoring three minutes after replacing Marco Reus by converting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's pass. The Italian also 'assisted' Dortmund's fourth goal when his cross was turned in for an own goal by Galatasaray defender Semih Kaya.

Immobile was an unused substitute in Dortmund's 2-1 loss Saturday to Bayern Munich.

After arriving from Torino in June amidst considerable fanfare with a hefty €19.5 million price tag, it was expected that Immobile would be starting games against the likes of Bayern Munich. However the Italian wasn't utilized at all on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp preferring to start with strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Marco Reus and using Adrian Ramos as substitute. Immobile has shown flashes of brilliance this campaign but has only notched two league goals and will need to work hard to win back the initial faith that was shown in him.

Immobile scored and got an assist as Dortmund ran out comfortable 3-0 winners against St. Pauli in the DFB Pokal Tuesday.

Immobile tapped in Shinji Kagawa's pass from close-range and later set-up Marco Reus' goal in a decent performance for the Italian. Immobile also had a goal ruled out for offside earlier on and was a threat throughout the game, particularly in the first half. He will have a much greater challenge at the weekend however when Dortmund travel to Bayern Munich.

Immobile came on as a 77th minute substitute but didn't manage to change the game as Dortmund lost 1-0 Saturday to Hannover.

Despite Immobile's goal in the last Bundesliga encounter with FC Köln, he was dropped to the bench against Hannover. Jurgen Klopp threw him on as a replacement for the ineffective Adrian Ramos but Immobile made no impact. He registered one shot in injury time but his rather extravagant attempt flew well over. With strikers Ramos and Immobile both being on poor form at the moment and Dortmund in desperate need of Bundesliga goals, Klopp will find it difficult to know who to pick next time around.

Immobile scored his second Bundesliga goal but was on the losing side as Dortmund lost 2-1 Saturday to FC Köln.

Immobile probably had his best game in a Dortmund shirt but was let down by another poor team display. Immobile's movement was excellent, he had four shots and finished superbly for the goal. Expect to see him remain in the starting line-up and start scoring more goals on the basis of this much improved performance.

Immobile had a lacklustre game, missing a couple of chances and being substituted after 65 minutes, as Italy clung on to a 1-0 win Monday against minnows Malta in European Championship Qualifying Group H.

Any hope that an international match against inferior opposition could be a way to get Immobile back in the goals and back on form were dashed as the striker toiled throughout and was substituted in the second half. He fired wide in the first minute and then missed a glorious chance when he headed straight at Maltese goalkeeper Andrew Hogg from close-range. Immobile will probably start on Saturday in the Bundesliga but will need to be far more clinical.
